I’ve been working on a London guide for work and I wanted to share five events in London that I think look really awesome and worth checking out this Autumn (now – December period). Whether you live in London or not, these events should go down in the diary, in my humble opinion. Spoiler: if you don’t enjoy fashion or consuming l’alcool then this post probably isn’t the one for you.
- Wonder.land at the National Theatre (from 23rd November, from £15)
I was so excited when I came across this! I’m a huge fan of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland and wouldn’t miss the brand new show based on one of my favourite film adaptations by Tim Burton and such a brilliant classic novel. So excited, I wouldn’t miss this for the world!
- Liberty in Fashion at the Fashion and Textiles Museum (from October, £9)
Celebrating the 140th anniversary of the Liberty store and it’s history and impact on Britain, as one of London’s most famous fashion houses (since 1875!!!). The exhibition will be showcasing the brand’s history and iconic trends. Expect floral, paisley, patterned prints and dresses galore! So just a few of my favourite things for me to gawp over for an hour or two.
3. Mademoiselle Privé at Saatchi Gallery (from October 13th, FREE)
Chanel is coming to London for a very special exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery for three weeks next month, and it’s totally free, yay! Based on the journey of Chanel through the years and the spirit of Mademoiselle Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld.
4. London Cocktail Week (5th-11th October, £10)
London hosts the biggest cocktail party for the sixth year with parties, pop-ups, £5 Cocktail Tours and an entire cocktail village at Old Spitalfields Market. For £10 you receive a wristband that allows you entry to over 250 (woah) amazing bars and restaurants which will all be serving £5 cocktails. It’s pretty much a weekend long happy hour across the whole city! This would be an amazing event to go to with a group of friends for a fab time.
5. Rumfest (17th-18th October, £44)
Because it had me at ‘rum’ and then ‘fest’. I am a big rum enthusiast, I’n not sure if it has something to do with growing up by the sea, but it’s one of the only spirits I enjoy. This event is a little pricey, but it’s the world’s largest rum festival and looks like a properly planned out way to learn about rum and cocktail masterclasses while sampling some of the world’s
best rum and cocktails – don’t mind if I do!
